A /// oddity
It is like the mysterious black obelisk in Kubrick's '2001: A Space Odyssey' was actually a shoe box - and these where inside. The Adidas Supernatural Creator is something...if not a little out of time (if only in looks). I appreciate the clean lines of this boot, the arching three stripes that cover the laces, the general 'slickness' and varying textures - yet it leaves me feeling like I need a Doc Browns' DeLorean to use them. I don't know, perhaps I am biased more toward the old school. But despite the fact these shoes do make an impression - they just leave me feeling a little cold. Like the deep cold of space.
